  Journey back in time with Pat and Donna as they remember the jukebox hits through the decades—a multimedia celebration of the timeless artists and songs that topped the charts (including: Glen Campbell, Elvis, Buddy Holly, Dion, Bob Dylan, Neil Diamond, and more).

  This is a true variety show—there is something for everyone. From the boppin’ sounds of the 50s and the generation-defining anthems of the 60s, through the ever-changing styles of the 70s, Jukebox Time Machine is an entertaining blast to the past. With dynamic video, tons of humor, Donna’s behind the scenes stories of the New York City music biz, and the joyful sounds of timeless tunes—this is more than a concert or a musical…It is an experience.

  This event kicks off the Cultural Center’s 2022 Fall Concert Series and will be held in its intimate visual art gallery space. Tickets are $10 in advance or $12 at the door. Members get a $2 discount. Students $5. Doors open at 7 p.m. with music beginning at 7:30 p.m. and running for approximately 90 minutes. Light refreshments and cash bar available.
